This week has seen the exhumation of the lost world of Cyberdrome – a reconstruction of the original website built in the late 1990s and some more material and news that have surfaced since then. Enjoy at Cyberdrome.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I really enjoyed it at the time you posted it; it was the highlight of my Christmas, without exaggeration. I particularly enjoyed the manual in the Dubai section with all the behind-the-scenes information.

    The passing mention of a Crinkley Bottom attraction is particularly intriguing, and any information you could provide about it would be delightful. I have a theory about this; Noel’s House Party episodes tended to end with the Grab A Grand game, which was really not so far from the Crystal Dome, except in a smaller, squarer box and without silver tokens, so that could have been the natural conclusion to your attraction.

    1. I went to see Noel Edmunds in about 1993 to discuss a “Crinkley Bottom” Cyberdrome. We had worked up a “storyboard” showing potential games including Grab a Grand. Despite protracted talks with his company manager, the project never got funded (he wanted us to put all the investment in and to charge us a licence fee). Instead a “Blobbyland” amusement park opened in Morecambe, Lancs the next year…but closed within months.

  2. Any chance of photos from the Southampton crystal maze? I understand it was still all there until a year or so back until an escape room company took over the area in the bowling complex. Be great to know some history of this particular maze and any photos you may have which could be shared on a local history group.

    1. Thanks for your comments. I’ve created a new gallery “Extras” on the Cyberdrome Extras page with all the photos I possess.
      There are several from the construction phase of the Southampton Crystal Maze. If you know of anybody who has others I would be happy to add them.
      Unfortunately I can’t display the descriptions with the current gallery plugin I’m using, so you can’t see my carefully crafted explanations – I’m working on it!
